Davenport on Grouse Trips Thursday, 3/24

It has been decided that instead of waiting a week for a grouse trip to finish and getting reports, I will transcribe telephone reports of current grouse trips. I will do my best. Amy Davenport

Before sunrise, the Weston group found Lesser Prairie-Chickens at the leks outside of Elkhart, Kansas.

They returned to Colorado and reported a Winter Wren, Red-naped Sapsucker and Barn Owl below the dam at Two Buttes Reservoir, Baca County.

At Lamar Community College, Prowers County they found a male Northern Cardinal at the south end of the woods. A female Red-bellied Woodpecker was at the north end. A House Wren was also reported.

The Stevens group started the day at the Waunita Hot Springs lek where 29+ Gunnison Sage-Grouse were counted.

They missed the Carolina Wren in Colorado City and ended the day at Cottonwood Canyon, Baca County. Birds reported included Rufous-crowned Sparrows, Lewis's Woodpeckers and Western Screech-Owls.
